Another Missile, Drone Attack Targets Saudi Arabia’s Southern Region

Illustrative image, source: the Houthis media wing

Late on October 7, the Saudi-led coalition announced that it had intercepted a ballistic missile and two suicide drones which were launched from Yemen, allegedly by the Houthis (Ansar Allah).

In a statement, the coalition said that the missile and drones were heading towards the city of Khamis Mushait in the southern Saudi province of ‘Asir.

“We take operational measures to protect civilians from violations and futile attempts,” the statement reads.

Usually, ballistic missiles are intercepted with MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile systems of the Saudi-led coalition and its allies,. Suicide drones are, however, shot down by fighter jets of the Royal Saudi Air Force with air-to-air missiles.

A day earlier, a suicide drone launched from Yemen targeted Abha International Airport. Four civilian workers were wounded. The Saudi-led coalition claimed that a drone launch site of the Houthis in northern Yemen was destroyed in response to the attack.

The Houthis are not announcing their small-scale missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia like before, likely to confuse the Saudi-led coalition.

The Yemeni group stepped up its attacks on Saudi Arabia after the recent withdrawal of US air-defense systems from the Kingdom.

They both target civilians.

farbat

saudi airports arent civilian infrastructure they carry out warcrimes from these facilities

Chris Gr

Yes they are. Both Saudi and Yemeni airports are civilian targets.

Icarus Tanović

No it is not! Yemen is attacked, by Saudia, not vice versa. Go, pick up your shekels hasbara troll.

Chris Gr

No proof for shekels

Robert

I think Yemen/iran should destroy Saudi Arabia first before they are eliminated …….ELLIOT

Destroying Saudi is hard because of Mecca and Medina. Saudi will lie and say Mecca and Medina are purposely being targeted by Iran and that will cause a huge Sunni vs Shia war if it plays out right for Saudi and the west. This is exactly what Israel wants

Chris Gr

Actually it is not that hard.

Icarus Tanović

We can do that. Mecca and Medina won’t be target. Only if Wahhabi Zionists does the diversion.

Suddenly the POS patriot “air defense” system has a 100℅ interception rate.

Hilarious propaganda from saudi inbreds.

Icarus Tanović

Remember when they have firing those mims from Riyadh to intercept Yemeni Yemeni balistic missiles, and one mim suddenly become surface to surface missile. It was embarrassing and insane funny.

Good comedy. Only saudis can repurpose a missile systems design capabilities, “by accident”.👍
